The new edition of this best-selling text has been reviewed and revised to clarify and update an understanding of mathematical concepts necessary for success in the machine trades and manufacturing fields. Mathematics for Machine Technology, Sixth Edition overcomes the often mechanical "plug in" approach found in many trade-related texts. A complete grasp of mathematical concepts are emphasized in the presentation and application of a wide-range of topics from general arithmetic processes to oblique trigonometry, compound angles, and numerical control. The material covered by this text is accompanied by realistic industry-related examples, illustrations, and actual applications, which progress from the simple to the relatively complex. Mathematics for Machine Technology, Sixth Edition provides readers with practical vocational and technical applications of mathematical concepts necessary to excel in the machine, tool-and-die, and tool design industry.
